Country United States
First awarded 1949

The Missouri Valley Conference Men's Basketball Coach of the Year is an annual basketball award given to the Missouri Valley Conference's most outstanding coach. The award was first given following the 1948–49 season.

As of 2014, among current members, Bradley has the most all–time winners with eight. The most recent winner is Gregg Marshall of Wichita State. There have been three ties for the coach of the year (1969, 1973 and 1987); there have been fourteen repeat winners in the award's history. Two coaches have won the award three consecutive times—Maury John of Drake in 1968–1970 and Marshall in 2012–2014.[1] Every current MVC member has had at least one winner except for the league's newest member, Loyola of Chicago, which played its first conference season in 2013–14.
